ExileServer – MySQL Error: Unable to locate extDB2 extension!

All of our Swiftnode game server nodes have this redistributable installed by default. But if you do not have a server with us you will need to install the following before your server will load the database extension.


You will also need to make sure your MySQL server has disabled STRICT_TRANS_TABLES which you can do by adding the following line to your my.ini file:


Note: On some windows variants (Server 2008 R2) you may need to modify the ini here: C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\my.ini rather than in your Program Files folder.

You can verify you have STRICT_TRANS_TABLES disabled by running the following query "select @@GLOBAL.sql_mode;" in your MySQL server.

If you continue to receive the error, make sure to copy your extDB2.dll, tbb.dll, and the allocator dll of your choice from @ExileServer to the root arma server. (where your Arma3Server.exe is.)

As always you can submit a ticket with our support technicians to have them resolve these issues for you.
